Mike Evans Extends His NFL Record

January 9th, 2022

History made. Again.

It’s eight years and counting for Mike Evans.

Joe’s just going to go ahead and say it: the best receiver in Bucs history will be in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Why does Joe say that? Because Evans is putting up numbers that not even Randy Moss and Jerry Rice did.

Tonight, Evans broke 1,000-yards receiving for the season. For Evans, this is old hat. He does it every year. Like clockwork.

Evans, who already owned the record, extended his NFL record to eight consecutive seasons of 1,000-yards receiving to start an NFL career. He pulled this off in the third quarter and, interestingly, he got hurt (though it seems minor) on the very same play.

No, Evans may not be a burner, which is what gets the full attention of a lot of NFL fans, Evans just produces. Year in and year out. He’s almost like baseball’s Tony Gwynn. The guy didn’t hit many home runs or have many RBIs, all he did was hit year in and year out. All Evans does is produce and score touchdowns. Doesn’t matter if his quarterback is worthless Stewart McClown or the greatest Tom Brady.

(Evans after tonight has 16 multi-touchdown games receiving tying him with Davante Adams for second-most since Evans came into the league in 2014).

That is the mark of an elite receiver and one who deserves a bust in Canton someday.

    Evans play 16 you fool

  3. Bucfan Says:

    Evans in my opinion is a Easy first ballot Hall of Famer.

  4. 1Gr8Buc Says:

    BradyBucs is a baby back b!tch.

  5. Whartonlax Says:

    Why are there so many negative comments on here? BradyBucs, cmon man. Just enjoy the W.

  6. James Craig Marlow Says:

    Still has more than other two regardless if it counts or not.

  7. geno711 Says:

    Great for ME about extending record and what a class act he has been for the Bucs. Some idiots like BradyBucs do not understand that the NFL will count all stats from 17 games just like when they go to 18 games they will count all stats then as well.

  8. Listnfrmafar Says:

    I wrote earlier he had to be a leader today and he was on fire. That’s the passion you need going into playoffs. Can you say sign Golden Tate? O needs help.

  9. JimmyJack Says:

    This game for Mike was much more then a record for me. Mike was completely dominate today……Next man up means Mike taking control and taking over the game. Thats what happened today!!

  10. Jp09 Says:

    BradyBuc your a f a g, Mike already has the record and just extended it. He also only played 16 games this year…

  11. Coburn Says:

    Nice to finally see some stuff across middlr of field for him. I still think he’s better running horizontal and shorter to intermediate routes. That’s why he’s so good in the red zone. It’s understandable that by running him deep it does clear that side of the field kit though

  12. Rod Munch Says:

    Actually, on the national level, whenever I hear people talk about Evans, they seem to think he is just a deep threat guy, and gets some jump balls.

    Evans, even with Brady, still doesn’t get much appreciation, mainly because of the Saints, and the fact they hold him in every game, get like 70 yards in PI calls against them, yet the narrative pushed by stupid people is they shut him down and he does nothing. And because the NFL, for whatever stupid reason, keeps putting that game in prime-time, that is the impression the national audience gets. He’s someone who is easy to shutdown, but will blow by some guys for cheap TDs. It’s really a remarkably stupid take, pushed by the national media.

  13. David Says:


    Don’t be such an ignorant hater SMH

    The 17 games is not going to matter in the record books. Otherwise what do we want to do with all the records that took 16 games because the NFL used to be 14 game season? It doesn’t work that way.
    He didn’t play 17 anyway.

    He is an absolute lock for the Hall of Fame right now. All the receivers trying to get in right now like Torry Holt and Steve Smith etc. are around the 12,000 yard mark. Evans will get there with ease and have WAY more touchdowns than all of them, he’s already got more than most of them!

  14. Listnfrmafar Says:

    I voted Evan’s in the poll.

  15. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Brady got Mike his 1000 & Gronk his 1,000,000

  16. Rod Munch Says:

    I’m going to have to side with Jp09 on that one. BradyBuc is indeed a twinkletoe’d moron.

  17. Youthxattack1 Says:

    Not only did he do it in 16 games, if you take away the extra game this year in Indy, he still gets his 8th consecutive year of 1000 yards.

  18. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Too bad you can’t delete comments on JBF.

    I’ve seen some dumb comments but BradyBucs has probably unplugged his computer/shut off his phone after that lol

  19. DrunkinyborI can always Says:

    I’ll say this from a so called street homie perspective. Mike Evans is legit a real one. This is what I hear from countless non Bucs fans.

  20. LongSeason Says:

    I don’t see anyone talking about this. We know Mike Evans broke his TD receptions record with the 2 TDs today giving him 14 on the year. That also breaks the tie he had with 32 RB James Wilder for TD from scrimmage by non QB in a season of 13. In 1984 Wilder had 13 rushing TDs and no receiving TDs. Last year Evans had 0 rushing TDs and 13 receiving TDs giving each 13 TDs from scrimmage. Evans 14 receiving TDs and no rushing TDs gives him 14 TDs from scrimmage and the record for non QBs.

  21. Coburn Says:

    Yeah rod. It’s sorta weird hoe Evans is seen by everybody ad just a deep threat guy. I mean since Arians has arrived that’s been a lot of his game, but prior to Arians arrival of wasn’t at all. He made his name with comimg back to Jameis, catching over the middle, tiptoe sideline catches on out routes. After Arians arrived then suddenly he was losing a bit of weight and trying to work on his speed

  22. Bob in valrico Says:

    Both Mike and Gronk stepped up big time. Glad they got everything they got
    records they deserved. Along with Godwin they are all unselfish team players.
    And hats off to Brady for getting them involved. in a big way. Also think Brady called Mike’s second touchdown .

  23. Bob in valrico Says:

    ^^^^ Bonuses for Gronk.

  24. FrankPillow Says:

    ME13 is really special. Just think of what life was like with him, if you dare. Congrats on extending the streak and let’s keep after the big prize.

  25. Coburn Says:

    In fact early Evans if was Vincent Jackson as the deep threat and then if I recall it was desean

  26. DavidBigBucFan99 Says:

    There’s a few morons who say things like Evans doesn’t know how to get YAC or run routes or sucks or we should trade him but look at this man. He’s an ultimate Buccaneer Man and a great player. No matter who the qb he gets his scores and yards!

  27. Coburn Says:

    Yeah David he’s the man. He’s also able to do it in different systems. He made his name as more of a possession type than worked on his speed a bit and makes a name going deep

  28. unbelievable Says:


    Godzilla mE13!

    All around class act too.

    And BradyBucs is an idiot. Mike only played 16 games this season anyway.

  29. Pewter Power Says:

    He got the record last year, the 17th game extended it

  30. Merlin Says:

    You do know anyone wanting to break k this record will have 17 games every season… Right?

  31. David Says:

    Pewter power

    The 17th game is irrelevant when it comes to the records. TJ Watt just got 22 1/2 sacks, there is not going to be an Asterix next to it. Evans didn’t play 17 games anyway.
    If people are going to start complaining because there’s an extra game then every record that was accomplished during 16 games needs an Asterix because the NFL used to play 14 games.

    I personally hate that they out of the game but it’s irrelevant

  32. David Says:

    With Godwin gone I believe you will see Evans doing a lot more of what he did his first few years which is being a possession receiver.
    We constantly think of him going deep but I bet most the stats show his receptions are mostly between 10 to 20 yards.

  33. Rod Munch Says:

    Coburn – Actually Evans lead the league in receiving avg in 2018, and was close in 2019, both years he averaged nearly 18 yards a reception.

    But, as stated, the national rep, that he’s a fast guy who can jump, is just dumb. But in fairness, he basically learned everything from Vincent Jackson, and when VJ was in San Diego, I always thought he was just a fast guy who caught deep balls, since I never paid attention to him, I didn’t even realize that wasn’t actually his game, he was bigger and slower than I thought, and got open by technique.

  34. Rod Munch Says:

    BTW, whoever made that Tweet (not Joe — the NFL @ CBS handle) is an idiot. Rice didn’t have 1000 yards his rookie year.

  35. Coburn Says:

    Yeah was watching 2015 Evans highlights. The depth of target was still fairly deep, but a lot more intermediate routes either over the middle of the field or more of the sideline routes were him running towards the sideline or also quite often running back to Jameis (sometimes just to help him out).. much less of him just streaking down the field.

  36. Tim a Jennings Says:

    He missed a game too so did it in 16 so no one can say it took 17 games. Let’s keep him and Godwin for life

  37. Eddie Marz Says:

    The only reason Mike doesn’t get more recognition is because he’s a team player. Not like the guy who walked off the field, thinking it was all about him. Go Mike Go Bucs!

  38. Corndog Says:

    ME13 each year he adds to this record, he adds to the TAMPA BUCCANEERS, and MIKE EVANS reputation . And when someone comes close to this record they will say Mike Evans started this record on the Buccaneers and no one knew who he was, but now they talk about his, and Buccaneer record which he keeps adding to it. Remember everyone got HATERS, everyone!!
